Nippon Ichi Software recently announced that Disgaea 5 is headed to PlayStation 4 during Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference. While we only saw teaser during the conference, NIS shared a little more in this week’s magazine reports. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
Disgaea 5’s storywill have the theme of “revenge” and will also have more volume than previous Disgaea games. There will be new systems as well.
The protagonist’s name is Kilia, a young demon boy who swears to get revenge against the demon emperor Void Dark. The heroine, named Seraphine, is a demon lord of the “Gorgeous Underworld,” and is the well-brought-up daughter of an upper-class family.
There’s also Usalia, who is the demon lord of some place called “Rabbit Rabbit World,” and has been affected by some curse that makes her go violent unless she eats curry.
The magazine report also has some quotes from Nippon Ichi president Sohei Niikawa, who stated ,“We thought about going multi-platform with PlayStation 3, but doing so would’ve made the PS3 the standard. Since we’re making it, I want to be able to offer something that could only be done with the PlayStation 4.”
Another quote from Niikawa says: “The number of characters that can be displayed at once has vastly grown. On the PlayStation 3 it was limited to 10 characters shown in high definition, but the PlayStation 4 can display 100 characters.”.
A product code for a trial version of the game will be included in the September 25 issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine.
Disgaea 5 is expected to release in Japan sometime in Spring 2015 for PlayStation 4.
